Dubai (WAM) A delegation from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum's Charity and Humanitarian Organisation left here today for Pakistan to erect two camps for Afghan refugees in Quetta at the Pakistan-Afghan border. The delegation was given orders by General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Defence Minister, to build two camps each accommodating 10,000 people.



Each camp will consist of 1500 tents, a clinic, 50 water holes, 100 sewage points and the occupants will be provided with blankets, food, medicine and other supplies. The Sheikh Mohammed Organisation made an agreement with the UNHCR, Pakistani and Afghani Red Crescents to provide an operation room to the project to enable the Dubai team to turn the camp to a semblance of a village. The project will also include the drilling of water well, clearing of land for cultivating wheat and the establishment of other economic, social and educational projects. (WAM)
